Exclusive: Paul Stewart calls for Spurs to sell Lucas Moura and Moussa Sissoko -Tottenham Hotspur News

Paul Stewart has called for new Tottenham Hotspur head coach Nuno Espirito Santo to boost his transfer budget by selling Lucas Moura and Moussa Sissoko.

Nuno, who left his post as Wolverhampton Wanderers’ chief by mutual agreement at the end of last season, was named as Jose Mourinho’s successor in June.

While he has been keen to bolster his options ahead of the Premier League’s big kick-off, which is less than two weeks away, Nuno has been made to settle for the loan signing of Atalanta goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini and Bryan Gil joining from Sevilla in a swap deal which saw Erik Lamela head in the opposite direction.

Former Spurs man Stewart believes Nuno should offload Moura and Sissoko before spending big money on a marquee signing.

Moura, 28, only made 14 Premier League starts last term, while Sissoko was named in the starting line-up just one more time than the Brazilian.

Both Moura and Sissoko are on £80,000-per-week contracts and Stewart believes now is the right time for Nuno to find buyers for the duo.

Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, he said: “I think it’s time for both of them to go.

Tottenham have won 24 trophies in their history - in what season did they win their first?

“When Moura is on form, he’s really good. But it’s far too infrequent.

“With Moussa, you get what you see. He is hardworking for 90 minutes but he’s not going to change the game for you or win you games.”
